HTC Droid Eris: 2.1 Android Update Rollout Details

By Alan Ng - May 12, 2010

We have some good news for owners of the HTC Droid Eris smartphone on Verizon now, as we can confirm that the rollout process of the update to Android OS 2.1 has now started. We have some important details for you.

As reported from BGR, the rollout will be a gradual affair, with only 1,000 owners getting the update to 2.1 at first. The update will appear OTA, so you should get a notification on-screen prompting you to update your device.

Don’t worry if you don’t, as Verizon confirms that a further 9,000 Droid Eris owners will get the 2.1 notification tomorrow.

Verizon are aiming to have the full rollout process completed by May 16th. Head over to BGR for the full list of changes within the 2.1 update.

    This is a terrible, terrible phone. Firstly, I have extreme troubles unlocking the phone for calls, so I miss them. The battery life sucks, the touch screen is difficult, it freezes and lags, and just today it crashed and deleted all my stuff. DO NOT GET THIS PHONE! It seems great at first but then it becomes terrible.

    Hopefully you were logged into your Gmail account before you installed the upgrade. If so, your contacts are available by re-logging into your Gmail account – they will download automatically. The same thing happened to me and saying that I panicked was an understatement. I called my carrier and he walked me through the retrieveal process.

    I updated my Driod HTC Eris this morning, and it deleted all of my contacts name and emails and information. How can I restore this? I have over 200 names, and to be honest that would suck if I have to spend all that time trying to figure out who they are 🙁 Pls help
